Default what triggers wakeup from suspend?

And, more importantly, how to change it.

I have two types of netbooks (an Asus Eee 701, and an Acer Aspire
One), both running F14. The Acer can be woken up by pressing any key
on the keyboard; on the Eee, I have to push the Power button. Since
that button seems to be dying, I'd like to be able to emulate the
Acer's behavior. Is that doable? Or is this hardware-dependent?

There's no gnome/kde/whatever on the Eee, just plain icewm.

It is system-dependent. I haven't messed with it on portable computers
(which tend to have more system-specific config), but on desktops, there
is usually a BIOS screen for what type of events can wake the system
(PS/2 keyboard, USB device, LAN, alarm, etc.).

For a USB keyboard, I have to enable the USB device option in the BIOS,
and then I have to set Linux to leave the right USB controller enabled
when the system goes to sleep. I have to figure out which USB
controller is needed and add a line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local to echo the
right one into /proc/acpi/wakeup (e.g. "echo USB3 > /proc/acpi/wakeup").

On a system that I for some reason kept plugging and unplugging the
keyboard (and ending up with it in different USB ports), I used the
following bit of shell code:

################################################## ######################
# Set USB keyboards to allow wakeup
for dev in $(grep -l '^01$' /sys/bus/usb/devices/*/bInterfaceProtocol); do
dir=$(cd $(echo "$dev" | sed 's!/[^/]*$!!'); pwd -P)
pci=$(echo $dir | cut -d/ -f5)
for pdev in $(grep "disabled *pci:$pci" /proc/acpi/wakeup | cut -d' ' -f1); do
echo "$pdev" > /proc/acpi/wakeup
done
done
################################################## ######################

And there may be jumpers on the motherboard to set which devices are
still powered up in standby mode. If the keyboard's plugged into a port
that's totally shut down, in standby mode, the keyboard is not going to
be able to be used to wake the computer back up again.

I doubt any non-desktop computer would have jumpers for that, but may
have the same limitation: That something might be completely powered
off, and the keyboard circuitry might be considered too much of a power
drain to be left running, opting for the simplicity of whatever monitors
just the power button.

There's nothing in the BIOS options about this, so it looks a lost cause.

Thanks,

Nice trick, thank you for teaching me about /proc/acpi/wakeup.
I researched the topic a little and found that there is a cleaner
interface to that file (acpitool -w, acpitool -W).
